Resources to Help You Carry Out Your 2018 Security Resolutions

The other week we outlined a number of resolutions to put you on the path to a cyber-secure 2018. In this post we’re going to direct you to some of the resources we produced in 2017 that will help you carry out those resolutions.

2017 was an eventful year in the cybersecurity world — to say the least! It seems that every day a new threat or major breach was causing a stir — whether it was Equifax, the RNC voter data exposure, WannaCry, Uber, Alteryx, or — to start the new year — Spectre and Meltdown!

If you want to take a look at the World’s Worst Data Breaches, here you go. But we’re going to stick to our preferred approach: After you read the splashy headlines, look inward to make sure your own data and systems are secure. To help you secure and manage your cloud environments, we’ve put together a summary of a few of the great resources we produced in 2017.

Looking Back on Cybersecurity Awareness Month and a 365 Day Outlook

Cybersecurity Awareness Month may be coming to a close, but we have already set our eyes on the future. The question is: How can we stay “security aware” year round and, more importantly, translate this awareness into actions that will help keep our companies secure?

Cybersecurity has never been more important than in the past few years. It seems that every week, a major new breach hits the news headlines, leaving every company more and more worried about whether they’re next. This month — National Cybersecurity Awareness Month — has been a great reminder to verify whether your security protocols and practices are up-to-date and effective. But with the state of things today, you can’t afford to stop there.

We believe that done right, security is a 24/365 operation. If you’ve been following our blog, you’ve learned that there are many ways to streamline and automate security so it doesn’t require an army to maintain.

In this post, we’re wrapping up our best pieces of advice for you so that every month going forward can be cybersecurity month at your company. Read more “Looking Back on Cybersecurity Awareness Month and a 365 Day Outlook”
